Electrolux leads industry in sustainable household appliances for fourth consecutive year

Building eco-friendly households with environment-friendly appliances can be easy with the right choices.

As the global manufacturer of home appliances, Elextrolux continues to provide consumers with choices that allow them to be more environmentally conscious. The appliances maker received top marks again in the annual RobecoSAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment Yearbook, an annual rating of the sustainability performance of the companies

Over the years, Electrolux has developed its various household appliance ranges with sustainability in mind. From the Ultrasilencer vacuum, which is made from recycled plastics, to the RealLife dishwasher, which has an AAA rating for energy efficiency. The company also encourages green thinking in product design through initiatives like the annual Electrolux Design Lab competition, which challenges young designers to come up with products that improve the everyday lives of people in a sustainable manner.

With the highest rating of companies assessed within the Household Durables industry, Electrolux receives all three top awards; Industry Leader, Gold Class and Industry Mover. The Industry Mover distinction is reserved for the company in each industry that has achieved the largest proportional improvement in its sustainability performance.

“RobecoSam is one of the largest global assessments of companies’ sustainability performance. We are very proud to remain the Industry Leader amidst such tough competition,” said Henrik Sundström, Vice President Electrolux Sustainability Affairs. “It is a confirmation that Electrolux has been successful in integrating sustainability in the business.”
